The Story

The Hare's Ear fly pattern is probably the most productive nymph there is. Its beauty is in its simplicity. The buggy nature of the fly pattern represents any number of insect species and entices fish with its lifelike movement. Adding a bead head only enhances the Hare's Ear fly, getting it down into the feeding zone quickly for longer drifts at the right depth. Excellent for still water fishing and can be used as a dropper pattern in any situation. Color, Natural.

Sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Classic Simple and catches fish. Hare's ear is a classic design that's proven to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fish catcher This is my go-to point fly on my base double nymph rig. It's a durable, well tied fly and the trout like it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable Looks like it won't fall apart after one fish . I buy flies from several sites these aren't the cheapest but typically well made.
